the handshake between president obama and president castro of cuba. the white house is saying the president did that as a matter of plightness. he shook hands with each of the dignitaries in apr certain partf the stadium sitting together to speak. those were the six or seven to speak. it wasn't anything planned. the white house as you probably are aware released a statement saying they are very concerned about human rights in cuba. and president obama also made the remarkable statement about how so many people in the world are embracing mandela's legacy but not living up to it. particular leaders around the world depriving their own people of liberty and keeping them in poverty. so, a wide range of emotions, thoughts and feelings, a remarkable day here. >> ron allen, thanks so much for your report. we want to bring in chairman of the special olympics and mandela champion for more than a decade. tim, thanks for being on the program. >> thanks for having me. >> you have a wonderful quote about nelson mandela. south africa's father but belonged to every nation. he really was a father

obama white house. they want to get people signed up. they want to get a gathering sense of confidence that the law will actually work. he needs his own troops to do that. i think there's been some sterling examples of democrats really diving down in a place like kentucky, a southern state where the democratic governor felt he had no choice given the poverty of the state and number of people who need medicaid, et cetera, et cetera. nobody accused of steve bashir as being a washington base the leftist conspiracy or. an old fashioned kentucky politician who has gotten to work. he feels he could use any help he can get from groups elsewhere around the country. >> howard, you see people are diving down and getting into it in kentucky. you make me think about good old sec football and the republicans are like a football team with no offense and only a defense. they just keep trying to stop and never want to advance the ball. they have no strategies but they do have multiple defensive strategies. the repeal movement is now dead. the attack the website movement is slowly going away

really see is people's views are pretty stuck on this law and called obama care. some republicans like it and a lot of republicans don't like it and a lot of democrats do like it. i'm not sure it will change for a long time. in fact, the white house's real hope is people stop thinking about the political issue at all and become engrained in politics the way medicare or social security is where it's really hard to take away benefits. >> that's pretty interesting the thing ari put up. >> i learned something today. >> tour'e, we may have to call it romney care again and see -- >> that would definitely work. >> peter alexander and perry bacon and ari, thank you very much. >> francis wilkin son on healing the wounds of obama care, the first monday in december and your home for the holidays in "the cycle." as a working mom of two young boys life could be hectic. angie's list saves me a lot of time. after reading all the reviews i know i'm making the right choice. online or on the phone, we help you hire right the first time. with honest reviews on over 720 local services. keeping up wit
